Wanting to be helpful, but still fairly new here. You’re asking how to meet the Ambitious Barrister? You should be able to do that by Chatting With the Local Gossip in your Lodgings. Your Persuasive should make her appear with the Bohemian Sculptress, and your Watchful should make her appear with the Loquacious Vicar. edited by bjharts on 2/27/2017
If I remember correctly, there should be an option to talk about her with either of them if the relevant stats are over 100. I’m guessing that didn’t happen? Can you take a screenshot of what options show up when you talk to them?
Have done both, haven’t recieved an reply for my troubles.
does it just increase the chance that she’ ll appear?[/quote]
IIRC, it just skips the first opportunity card. If you talked about her with your friendly neighborhood weirdos, she should already be in your lodgings, wedged between other storylets. And soon after that, touring the four starting areas.
